Jackie Young took on Broward County, Fla.'s two largest law firms and prevailed. A jury has awarded her $4.9 million in a malpractice case related to litigation that began in 1997. Young, who was turned down by eight or nine lawyers before finding one willing to take her case, says she doesn't think badly of lawyers because of her experiences. In fact, she's considering going to law school. But the litigation that began 12 years ago is not over yet for Young: She will face an appeal before seeing any money.
